Beyond is the eighth studio album by the alternative rock band Dinosaur Jr. It was their first LP in a decade after 1997's Hand It Over, and the first album by the original lineup since 1988's Bug. The band planned a full world tour in 2007 to support the album.[11] The band played "Almost Ready" on the Late Show with David Letterman to support their album.

It debuted at #69 on the Billboard 200.

"Almost Ready" was used on the Major League Baseball 2K8 and Skate 3 soundtracks, and "Pick Me Up" is downloadable content for the Rock Band series.

The songs "Almost Ready" and "Crumble" were used in Alien Workshop's skateboarding film Mind Field.

A music video was made for "Been There All the Time", featuring Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore and his daughter, Coco. It was directed by Matt Dillon.
